Default Intel TB chip??? Interesting :D

http://www.techreport.com/etc/2006q3...index.x?page=1

This could prove QUITE interesting. And FP monster like this could upset any chance of AMD regaining the crown with K8L for top performance unless AMD can get those HT mounted co-processors out the door quickly. Sounds like AMD is going to be kept hopping for quite some time. The chip itself has 80 execution cores for pure FP math. It's not x86 compatable on it's own, but glued to an x86 chip, it wouldn't have to be. The insane bandwidth this chip has to it's sram cache is might crazy too. Each core has 256k dedicated to it from a massive bank of 20MB. WOW! Not sure what all to make of this beyond the WOW factor tho...

R600 can run uber-high res with Doom about 2000FPS+ should better.

Project Z has been in the works for *years*. I've been reading about it for at least 2. They're not springing anything on anyone
